Harrar Mocha
« on: 26/05/2015, 05:33 PM »
Hi guys,

for the last 6 weeks Ive really been enjoying a Harrar Mocha from The Coffee Co (Balaclava VIC). I think they've got it blended pretty well.
Ive been having my morning coffee as a latte (double shot) as well as enjoying many blacks throughout the rest of the day.

Ive got it dialled in so I extract around 30ml in 27 seconds (including the auto perfusion from my HX), 18 grams weighed after grind, and 36 fluid grams after extraction.

Full bodied, with decent cream, sweet, and its been the "house" blend and will continue to be for the next couple weeks. Then I'll switch it for an Ipanema espresso blend that I also tried from the same guys and its pretty awesome too.

I keep to my darker roasts, I'm not a 3rd wave guy even though I've tried some of the lighter blends and some SO's but I like to drink coffee and not fruit juice :)

I've never had a Yemen and a Harrar blend.  Sounds like my cup of coffee!  I too enjoy a medium+ roast and am not a fan of lighter roasts as a general rule.

You should give it a try, i find myself going through 500 grams of this stuff every 8-10 days.
Maybe I should slow down but then again there is published research that shows that our bodies regulate our caffeine intake so all good. Plus I read someone where else that 5 coffees a day is good for you so looks like i need to keep maintaining my addiction :)

Im almost out of Yemen so when I reorder I'll add some Harrar if it's in stock!  I'm drinking a Mocha/Rwanda at the moment whic is 2:3 and at 6 days post roast is truly wonderful!
